Re: NEW West End Girls 2x12" (Nov 2020)

Nothing is going to be better than the version the did with the BBC Orchestra and/or the 10" version (I don't know if this one is official). The 10" version that they issued as a limited edition 10" record with fold out picture sleeve that they even gave a catalogue number, 10R6115? ...

Re: Chris playing keytar

Just done a hunt and not found it yet but did find this - I didn’t know they’d ever performed I’m not scared on TV. https://youtu.be/Sj9CokMi8MI Do you think they're miming to the seven inch edit from that ultra rare 3 x 7" Introspective set here? Would love a digital release of those edits on...

They did. This track samples the isolated vocal ad libs heard at the end of the Shep Pettibone remix of 'Love Comes Quickly' that appears on 'Disco'.

Says who? What's the source - other than "Disco 5" style fan forum ramblings?

Re: PSB vs NO Tour Merch (just for fun)

Love these. Such a simple idea, yet it works so well. Be great if they adopted these ideas (and gave you credit of course).

We'll done

Re: Remaking the albums: Please

Greetings, The only change I would make is to replace the album version of Suburbia with either the Video Mix or 7" mix... they themselves admit that the album version of Suburbia is a bit demo-ish and under done, and only really came into its own once it was mixed and remixed for single relea...

Re: Kylie's new album is called Disco - does that kibosh Di5co?

Even if they did, it wouldn't be titled something as vulgar as 'Di5co' which looks horrid. They'd stick with previous convention and it's be 'Disco 5'. Don't believe there's ever been a stated intention to bring this out though, so yes, pure fan wishlisting.

That'd make it a double CD - unless you removed one of the other tracks.

Re: Death of Ennio Morricone

An opportune moment to say that, film or no film, It Couldn't Happen Here is an all-time classic that will never leave my PSB top-10, and in no small part down to Morricone's arrangement. I don't think he did arrange it though, did he? Reading the rest of this thread it seems his contribution was t...

Re: IT COULDN’T HAPPEN HERE BLU-RAY SCORE A SEMITONE LOWER

The weird thing is that, although the DVD plays at a faster speed than the Blu Ray disc, the songs are still pitched too low - try playing the original album version of ICHH alongside the soundtrack version at the start of the film...the pitch is lower (not as much as the Blu Ray, but it's still lo...

Re: Video Remasters

..maybe there are some hopes with "Heart" (no big expectations anyway...) and Always On My mind (that one was included on the new movie Bluray, isn´t it?? Is it really in HD there??) 'Always On My Mind' on the 'It Couldn't Happen Here' Blu-ray looks awful. Definitely not remastered or 4K.

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Hmm... I've never had a bluray player but I have a bluray CD-ROM which I am going to use to rip the bluray (hopefully arriving soon) into a MKV file before watching it. But now it looks like I will have to first convert/resample the video file to whatever frame rate/timing represents the actual act...

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Still wonderful to see this again, despite the film feeling ever so slightly "sleepy" due to running slow. Just rewatched it with the commentary, and whist Jack Bond gives no insight whatsoever into any meaning the film may have, it's lovely to hear how proud of the film he still is. In hi...
